Product Sourcing – Overview
Your product sourcing from China made easy!
In China, you can find suppliers of almost everything imaginable. Yet finding the right supplier is not as easy as it seems.
Go onto any of the trade websites like Alibaba.com or globalsources.com and you may think that sourcing from China is something simple that you can handle yourself. But finding the right suppliers is not as easy as may first seem.
While sifting through the thousands of results and suppliers to choose from, you will realize that choosing one is a very difficult task. You will need to perform some background checks to determine if the companies listed in the results are actual manufacturers, trading companies or just English speaking middle-men or real suppliers at all.
Once you have established you are dealing with a real factory, the painstaking job of explaining exactly what you need begins. You will need to agree accurate pricing, delivery lead times, product quality required, samples and shipping costs.
Is the price quoted FOB (free on board) or ex-works from the factory? You may soon realize that this large amount of legwork is further complicated by language and cultural barriers. Often you will be left wondering if exporting from China is worth all the hassle and headaches at all!
